Funky, outdoor picnic tables. Wait in a long line to order, but it's worth it. Lovely setting on the water - not cheap but delicious.

Like everyone says, Star Fish Co. is just a great place to enjoy fresh seafood. Walk around back, pick up a paper menu and order by the bar. Be advised they only take cash. Find a table on the porch or dock. We got there...More

I live on the other coast of Florida near many good seafood restaurants and seafood markets. But anytime I get to the west coast, I make it a point to travel to Cortez to eat at Starfish. Yes, you will sit outside at picnic tables...More

Try the Tasty & Fresh Grouper sandwich at the dockside Star Fish Company Cafe. Fun time watching the commercial fisherman come in on their boats to unload their catch of the day in this Cortez FL fishing village.More

We love eating at this restaurant. Their mullet, oysters and scallops are the best. Along with the seafood being great they have cheese grits which adds to the great taste.More

A must do for fish and seafood fans - you line up to order (cash only) and wait for the fresh food to arrive at your picnic table shared with new-found friends. Super food and excellent value.

We went on a weekend...not a good idea. We waited about 45 minutes to get a crowded seat. The food was pretty good but the service was spotty.
